Nature magazine highlights the groundbreaking nature of this capsule, suggesting it has the potential to significantly transform the landscape of diagnosing and treating digestive system diseases.


What sets it apart is its unique capability as the first ingestible technology capable of actively detecting and instantaneously transmitting information about crucial biological molecules that serve as indicators for diseases.


This capsule is designed to detect and promptly relay data regarding the presence of nitric oxide gas and hydrogen sulfide derivatives, which are recognized as significant markers of inflammation associated with intestinal diseases. #Technology
